BKT brings FL 695 into the spotlight as a steel-belted tire which has been specifically designed to optimize the performance of trailers employed in construction and agri-transport operations.

This product adds to BKT's offering, which already boasts a portfolio of over 3,600 products, consolidating its position as a leader in the off-highway tire industry with the widest product range available on the market.

As global demand for agricultural products increases and advanced technologies are adopted, tractors and trailers are becoming more and more crucial and versatile tools. These types of equipment, traditionally used in agricultural operations, are now also employed in construction because of their flexibility, power and adaptability to different applications.

Operators in agriculture and industry are making efforts to optimize the use of their machinery and implements in order to avoid periods of inactivity, taking full advantage of their potential in various operating contexts. This trend is supported by breakthroughs such as precision farming, robotics, and electric tractors, which enhance the efficiency and sustainability of operations.

"With FL 695, we have wanted to create a tire that meets the specific needs of agro-industrial applications, where trailers play a key role in overall productivity as well as having a strong impact on performance and operational efficiency. That's not all. FL 695 also responds to the demand in terms of reliability, versatility and durability in all operating conditions, proving to be an unrivaled tire, outcome of a careful research and development process, meant to provide operators with a long service life," comments Denis Piccolo, Product Manager at BKT.

FL 695's center-block tread design ensures excellent stability and endurance under all conditions, while also facilitating excellent self-cleaning during use on road, field or other types of terrain. The tread depth contributes to a longer product life cycle, while the robust casing and steel belts provide effective protection against punctures. In addition, the special compound employed in the manufacturing process increases its puncture resistance, thus ensuring reliability in the most demanding operating conditions.

One more strength of FL 695 lies in its versatility, emerging as the ideal solution for road transport operations in winter as well as soil fertilization activities in summer.

FL 695 is presently available in four sizes: 600/55 R 26.5, 650/55 R 26.5, 600/60 R 30.5 and 710/50 R 30.5. This tire expands BKT's already highly diversified product range, confirming the company's strategy of providing high-quality solutions even for the heaviest applications. Choosing the right tire for each task means preventing premature wear and tear, ensuring greater product durability, which in turn results in a lower environmental impact and improved cost efficiency.
